squeeling after T belt change

As some of you know i just replaced all the front seals and the timing belt and balencer shaft belt. I got it started today and there was some ridiculous squealing noise and it almost sounded like my tensioner was flopping around i did every thing according to the shop manual. and the T belt was a lil loose after i turned the engine off. HELP PLZ

LOUDD squeel = alternator or PS belt is too loose.

It may squeel for a while, if it is indeed your t belt. Check your ps and alt belts though as twok said.

I know I went from an auto tensioner to a manual, and mine has a hum to it (almost like a supercharger) because it's "too tight." With the manual tension, you dont want to have to retighen it in 1-3k miles, so you overdo it the first time and deal with the noise till it wears in.

I dont know about an auto tensioner though, =/ If you rule out the ps and alt belt, you can take a quick look at the tensioner. Timing belts are usually too tight when they squeel, if its too loose it'll skip teeth and cause a bigger problem. I'd say you can't go wrong really, with auto, if might make a little noise while it breaks in.

Also, try making a video. Take off the valve / top plastic shield and show us exactly how loose it is. The top, between the gears, should have a little bounce in it, you should be able to twist the belt a quarter / half turn. Going from the left gear toward the crank pulley (longest stretch of belt) should be pretty tight though.

Re: squeeling after T belt change

Ill make a video for you guys. the PS belt and the alt belt were tight. I even checked to see if it was my PS pump and took the belt off to see if that would quit the squeeling but it didn't.

Re: squeeling after T belt change

How tough was it to get your belt on? Was it pretty easy or did you fight with it for some time till it slipped on?

Re: squeeling after T belt change

Ah, the sound is normal then. =) I did mine, and at first it was horrible, I thought we totally messed it up. But I took the car for a spin and you can hardly hear it now at idle, and it sounds like a little super charger when cruising around. It will do this from 1,000 till as far as 3,000 mile, especially if you bought a good belt. It's annoying, but you get used to it, and eventually it'll just disappear.

Thats my 2 cents tho.

Re: squeeling after T belt change

A video is still preferred though, better safe then sorry. If it IS too loose, and is slipping for whatever reason, let some of the other members point it out when they can see the taught on the belt (did I just make that word up?). I've heard if you mis-place a washer, it can cause your belt to slip and trash your engine. We triple checked the tensioner when we did mine.

Taught as in tightness. xD Upload it somewhere, try a google search for video uploads, or just use youtube.

Re: squeeling after T belt change

How did you readjust it? Mine was so tight, with all the slack that was given it was still an hour long fight. Did you just loosen the bolt and let it sit where it wanted to? Did you make it tigher / looser?

Re: squeeling after T belt change

hey guys a lil update she's back and running great
my idle is a little lower than i would like for some reason (600 ish) but its running great
took it to a shop to have them hit the crank pully with an impact gun and double check the tension for me they said it was great and i have nothing to worry about
all the seals seem to be holding up fine. so im pretty excited to have her back up on the road!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: squeeling after T belt change

well i put the lower timing cover back on and it went away but when i did that i had to take the adjusting bolt off and it let all of the tension on the belt off, so when i reinstalled the lower t cover and put the adjusting bolt back on and re did the tension adjustment it was gone. also there is a "washer" that goes inbetween the front main seal and the timing gear that goes on to the crank "1 st gear that goes on the crank" make sure you installed that washer concave side facing the engine.
